Camping or hiking – or both – require the obvious, that is, something to store your essentials in! While it might save you money using the old college backpack you used to haul your books around in, you might end up spending your entire outdoors trip in discomfort. It’s best to invest in a good pack – your body will thank you later. There are different types of backpacks depending on the activity – be it for day hiking, car or backcountry camping, or lengthy travel across your favorite destination country. However, don’t try using your 60 L backcountry pack that you would normally use for a week-long trip as a good substitute for a day hike. Remember that the larger an object is, the more likely you will fill it full of “stuff” that you don’t really need. That adds more weight to your trip.
